down the cost of health care, even in the private sector as well. >> when is the government -- when is the government ever done that? with george bush's plan, you were critical and had a right to be for prescription drug benefit. the argument ises that it would drive down the cost of those drugs. if anything they have soared since that benefit came in because the government cannot act as a source of even buying in bulk for cutting prices. >> that's exactly right. and in fact i'm also supportive of legislation that would allow medicare, just leak the veterans administration to negotiate with the manufacturers, the drug companies, for lower drug prices. and i guess the point is that there are -- >> it doesn't work. didn't work in the case of drug prescriptions. if you were to expand this to care, what -- >> no, no. >> what is the chance you would get more bang for the buck? >> here's the difference. if medicare were allowed to negotiate with the pharmaceutical companies it would work, and again, that estimate is about over ten years, about $200 billion in lower prices that the federal
the government takes in "x" number of dollars and it's lg willing to borrow "x" number of dollars, for the ceiling. for every $6 of $steb, it's borrowed money! we are spending less than we are taking in in revenue. at this point, that comes home to haunt you. i am saying the victims didn't nide the money, we don't need to spend $16 billion on things that don't have to do with victims. >> neil: bottom line, if there are other storms, we don't have a rainy-day fund. >> we don't. we can't by law have a rainy-delay fund -- have a rainy-day fund. wall street's numbers are down, in terms of taxes that we are collecting. the city's going to have to make up billions of dollars this year. what's the federal government going to do when that money is not in the coffers? >> neil: thank you very much. meanwhile, looking live at yet another school shooting at st. louis. this one, ahead of the president's new gun control plan. we are on at the eve of his assault weapons assault. how this and this debate could affect us. much more. ...so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mm
enforcement. keeping data on where the guns are. the government stopped keeping those records in 2004 and improving the background check system. so there's more sharing of information. joe, the other path forward would be congressional action and we're told that the president will push for an assault weapons ban and expansion of the gun sales of all kinds. even if i tried to sell you a gun privately, that would require a background check and then limit the sale of high-capacity magazines. those are some of the major issues. we expect to hear the president outline tomorrow, joe. >> jess, is this the kitchen sink or are there things they held back on? >> reporter: well, what the president is describing it as is comprehensive and these are issues that they prioritize. i expect that the white house is is going to place a serious emphasis on this high-capacity magazine issue. i'm told that in private meeting the vice president has emphasized that the high capacity magazine could make as much of a difference, more of a difference, maybe, than any other pressure. he has pointed out to multip
of the individual and the power of the state. at the time that you're talking about in 1787, the government had muskets and individuals had muskets, there was a very close correlation between the power to use violence on both sides. the other thing that you have to take into account, this is something i haven't heard in this debate, and that is if you look basically to the middle of the 19th century, 1862, the winchester henry rifle, report on that rifle that i just cited in a recent paper showed that it fired 15 rounds in less than ten seconds. the fact of the matter is that repeating technology is 150 years old. and one of the worries here, i think, for people who are on the other side of this is that when we go through this bad gun analysis that there's not really a solid boundary between the current category of assault weapons, parcularly rifles, and any other gun that is out there. >> why ban machine guns then? >> machine guns were banned in 1934 as a result of the national firearms act. >> why not ban the ar-15? >> i think you can make a coherent distinks between semi-automatic firing and
the government. >> and another brutal and horrific and barbaric rape in india. what will stop it? the star of "slumdog millionaire" freida pinto has an idea. she's our guest. let's go "outfront." >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, war in mali. a deadly conflict between al qaeda militants and the government is getting violent. they're threatening to take control of the entire country. the militants' move prompted france to take action over the weekend. they put boots on the ground and went all in, bombing rebel training camps and other targets. so what will the united states do? a pentagon official told me this afternoon that the u.s. will participate in mali, but, and i want to make sure i put quotes around this, it's still deciding what that looks like. when we went to the mali border last summer, i saw first hand how dangerous the situation is. today, we spoke to some of our sources on the ground, including the military commander of the al qaeda's linked group. he told us that the militants are, in his words, excited and would welcome u.s. troops on the gro
of these lawsuits? >> he will pay back some. he will settle. the government settles these sort of cases. let's say he loses 50 million bucks, he still has a fair amount. he's not going to starve. more importantly, he will have his narrative back, his life as a competitive athlete back. the question is, is he going to apologize to the people he hurt along the way? we talk about this as if he's the only part of the story. in fact, he's not. the story is much bigger than just him. >> he has great pr. but, as you and i talked about before, juliette, he was a jerk to an awful lot of people. i mean, he sought to destroy people who would testify against him, who had spoken the truth. >> i think jerk is an understatement. i think a lot of those people are devastated right now. and i don't really know what to think when he's calling some of these people up to apologize. i actually spoke to a few people he has reached out to and they're like dumbfounded. they don't know whether to believe him or not. >> did you see him threaten people, reporters who reported things that he felt were inappropriate? >> well,
clarity from the government of algeria. >> the algerian government rejected offers of the u.s. help. and u.s. special operations teams remained on standby in nearby europe. unarmed u.s. drone was repositioned over the b.p. complex. >> we're kind of still there. they are still a threat. they are a threat in yemen and so mall whasomalia and threat ak in mali. >> some say the instability in mali and algeria are related to the decision to intervene in libya and overthrow moammar gadhafi whose mercenaries fled home. >> it's clear the flame that sparked this. you can argue it could have happened anyway. but influence of well-trained fighters going in to countries with existing problems exacerbated the problems. >> at the end of the bush administration, the state department considered mali a success story, model of democracy. the foreign fighters that returned to the region after the iraq war ended caused the fight against al-qaeda to move to north africa, bret? >> bret: we will head back for breaking details. thank you. fox news learned deputy national security advisor mcdonough is expected to b
that the government should take any action necessary as quote, as long as it saves even one life. now, the third, when barack obama read from the letters of children, it reminded me of the 1980's, remember the presidential debate, jimmy carter revealed to us, he had talked to his 12-year-old daughter, amy, about nuclear proliferation. now, children, they do have wonderful virtues, but children's ability to understand the intricacies of things like nuclear proliferation, and in this case, the link between guns and violent crime, it's not high among them. this is a play for our emotions and we need to see that as such and lastly during his speech today the issue of gun control shouldn't be a divisive one. wait a minute, for obama to sermonize about the problems of divisiveness, like john edwards sermonizing to us about the problems of, well, infidelity. plain hypocritical. and former fox advisor contributor, karl rove. >> good to be back. >> sean: first of all, i'm watching obama, you're watching obama. different guy in the second term? >> more confrontational, more aggressive, more focused on the polit
, but down in the bunker, i'm ready for that dark tomorrow when jack-booted government thugs come for our guns. that's where the ghillie suit comes in. let's say the government busts in here looking to arrest me because i'm a gun owner and haul me off to one of those jails where you can't bring your gun. [ laughter ] oh, they have 'em. they already have them set up, okay? the minute they bust down that door, i just do this. [ laughter ] [cheers and applause] "hey, where's colbert? >> he's not here. just a pile of grass clippings on his desk. perfectly normal. and i'm home free. you're going to want to get one of these, and not just because it's slimming. [ laughter ] no, tomorrow is the day reich marshal von amtrak has promised to issue his recommendations for gun control. >> i'm going to be submitting to the president a proposal as to how to proceed. i'm shooting for tuesday. we all know there's no silver bullet. >> stephen: you hear that? [ laughter ] they're taking away our silver bullets. how will we defend ourselves from werewolf bandits?! [ laughter ] so with our guns under attack w
was going to be that he's going to go full on like socialist black panther one world government. now he appears to have gone more season one of mad men. what's happening? >> john, people forget, president obama is also half white. everybody was was so focused on black obama and all the black stuff he did in his first term. obama care, food stamp. they completely forgot about white obama who has been in there biding his time. just waiting to take this country back and restore the traditional america this black obama has worked so hard to destroy. >> jon: wow. exactly jon: i got so say, white obama has been playing a long game >> jon, you know, white obama has always been there making the occasional appearance. on vacation. on weekends. i mean, you're not going to catch a brother wearing those jeans and a bike helmet on a ten speed with cross trainers on. >> jon: that white obama is pretty white. >> the whitest. jon: so if white obama is 50% and black obama is 50%... >> well he's not quite like that, okay. according to the white obama, black obama is only 47% of total obama. >> jon: what?
and that this spending is more about democrats building up government programs than rebuilding from sandy. >> interesting. of course, as we all know, you can put all that money in, then when there's a disaster somewhere else, they ask for more anyway. i know this infuriated lawmakers from new york and new jersey, both democrats and republicans. know what, when it's you, you want the money. doesn't matter what your party is. there was certainly irony in that. but how have they fought back against these accusations of fat pork? >> well, vigorously would be the first word. time and again, they pointed out all the items in this amendment which would indeed help rebuild businesses. get people back into their homes, repair infrastructure and they keep insisting all this money is vital for long-term comprehensive recovery. a few times they even lit into their fellow lawmakers from other places like the gulf coast, saying in effect, we took care of your disasters, now you owe us. this did get nasty at times, i have to say, as it often does when one side calls a funding bill important and the other calls it poosr
captured and now we're getting the official algerian government line from their mouth piece press. and they're tempering it down a bit saying four foreign hostages have been freed, british, irish, french, no americans mentioned and eyewitnesses say, however, there's some hostages, some captors have been killed in all of this. remember, what we have been reporting about is three to seven americans held, for the u.s. involvement, along with the drone, fast deployment special force teams are at ready, they're not in country yet and president obama has been speaking to algerian sources and speaking to the u.k. prime minister cameron as well as the french prime minister hollande and people in washington are asking for clarity, here in london, they are nervous and getting late word from the japanese government that they want a stop to this operation immediately. all of this, a response, according to the militants, that french-led assault in the neighboring mali against rebel militants there, and the french troops are on the ground now, staging an assault now, asking for the u.s. help. the u.s. is
health care is, it's very government-controlled and it's becoming more government-controlled so it's the opposite of free enterprise capitalism. >> all that and more in just minutes away, first, manti mania. notre dame football star manti te'o in the center of a big hoax, at the the victim or in on the hoax. and a teammate calling him a liar. >> and joining us with the latest facts on this story and jack, before we get to your conversations with teammates of him, i'm curious, set the stage. what are the facts as we know it tonight? >> well, the facts are so convoluted. it's such a long, deep rabbit hole where the story comes from. the quick version is that here you have manti te'o, star linebacker, notre dame, goes on to come in second place in heisman trophy ballots. he had this girlfriend he allegedly met a few years ago, she allegedly was diagnosed with leukemia and he kind of rode this wave of this tragic love story that happened to coincide on the same day as his grandmother's died, this fictitious girlfriend passed away and he was crying on the side line of the michigan win m
minister. the two countries, two governments working together to try to work out what they can do to bring had an end to this hostage situation. state department officials would not confirm any numbers, any names, any details about this. they say they want to keep everything under wraps so they can work the channels as best they know how. this, of course, a very concerning situation with these islamic militants taking the hostages. among them some americans, just put the map back up again. we're going to talk about mali in the south. look to the east. it is possibly no coincidence that this gas field is right on the border with libya. the rise of islamic extremism right across north africa is a major concern right now for u.s. officials. >> as you look at that map, you can see mali is well to the south. all of this is related to the fight against islamists in the neighboring country. >> reporter: remember the french launched an air campaign on friday. aircraft, jet fighters, helicopters also going in. they have now made this a ground campaign. remember, we heard from leon panetta just a co
have been struggling to chase this down and get the details. the u.s. government says it is taking the lead on the hostage situation. what is it doing to make sure the americans who are being held hostage are safe? >> erin, the first thing they did was to get some satellite surveillance over that area which means that the fbi can now monitor to some extent what is happening on the grown. the next thing the u.s. military did was upgrade the readiness sat tus of the so-called commander's in extremists force, the small lethal counter terrorism force that u.s. african command did not have when that was attacked in benghazi libya. it was stood up and allows african command to have a ready to go special operations team dedicated to hostage rescue and counter terrorism. this team we're told was already on its way to senegal to be in place for any potential missions that might come up with mali. they have been diverted in an undisclosed location. they don't have any orders to go yet. a defense official says with the number of hostages and potential hostage-takers there, it would be an extr
jennifer griffin quoting her sources in the u.s. government saying in fact some of those freed were americans. maybe one american in fact even called his family. it all shifted again according to reports of the at least militants, the militants holding these captors talking to another regional news agency saying as many as 35 foreign hostages had been killed and that 15 captors had been killed as well. this a part of some sort of an assault by the algerian security forces arounded that complex. we know from the u.k. foreign office here in the past hour that there is some kind of an assault going on. what appears to be happening is algerian helicopters are strafing or bombing locations. the claim is they're hitting vehicles, vehicles, maybe holding hostages, american, maybe foreign hostages at the very least. other nationalities involved, british it, irish, french, japanese. some injured. there was at least one british person killed. but again a fluid situation, bill. bill: fluid indeed. now is this a reaction to what is happening in neighboring mali and the update us what is happeni
details to provide to you. reports of loss of life and are seeking clarity from the government of algeria. >> we are learning more. the state department telling us these terrorists are armed with ak-47s and some are wearing explosive vests. these are suicide vests. they have reportedly been put on the hostages there. for more on this we go to jim clancy. so many moving parts and details from the story today. what do we know? >> a lot more questions than answers. i kwish there were good news, but it's an uncertain situation. the press service is telling us the two britains, a kenyan from a french man have been freed in this algerian operation. an irishman is freed. talk to his parents. other than that the details are sketchy. what appears to have happened here is that the man in charge of operation and the gunman on the ground attempted to move their hostages. they didn't want to be caught in the oil facility, that gas facility. they tried to move the hostages to the south and they were in a convoy they e trying to get out and there widespread reports that the hostages have been killed. i
suspicious about social security and government support for the elderly and spending money on medical research and then get this, suspicious about programs a, making sure that kids and poverty are getting enough to eat. this is not only deeply dishonest, it's a gross distortion, a lecture coming from a man who is responsible for a massive increase in poverty during his presidency. now, a third thing we saw from obama's press conference was how deeply misleading his facts and his claims are. for example, obama kept saying his plan would cut 4 trillion dollars in the budget in the next decade, but that claim is utterly untrue. as any number of fact checkers have pointed out the 4 trillion dollar figure comes from number one, it counts 1 trillion in cuts and reached a year ago in the budget negotiations with congress, meaning those savings are already in the bank. number two, it counts 800 billion dollars in savings and debt payments from lower deficits, as a spending cut. that's a dubious claim. number three, obama is counting a nearly 1 trillion dollar savings from more money than nobo
they are vowing to government the protection act. any federal law banning semi automatic handguns or limiting size of magazines, unenforceable in texas. and federal agents who enforce gun laws, would be in violation of texas law, i'm opposed to anything the federal government would do to go back on their sworn obligation to uphold, defend the united states constitution. in wyoming federal law enforcement could be jailed for five years if they enforce gun laws. now, constitutional lawyers will argue that federal law trumps state law, but some lawmakers say there needs to be a showdown and this might be it. we're not just talking about states, but counties are pushing back, lindh county, oregon, tim mueller says he won't enforce federal gun regulation and won't allow the feds to do so in his county. listen. >> making criminals now honest citizens, that's not the path to go. if i could ask anything out of this, just get people talking about it. >> reporter: they're talking all right. in fact, we've got sheriffs in two other states, in kentucky and idaho doing exactly what sheriff mueller is doing, t
militants. u.s. government officials tell cnn that may not necessarily, though be the case. let's get straight to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence working this story for us. chris, be what is the very latest that you're hearing? >> wolf, the latest that we're getting from u.s. officials is that some americans may have escaped but some may still be held by those hostage takers and they are still seeing signs perhaps of some intermittent fighting suggesting that perhaps this isn't over yet. as the hostage situation stretched to a second day, u.s. officials scrambled to find a resolution and determine the state of the americans still in militant hands. >> this incident will be resolved, we hope with a minimum loss of life. but when you deal with these relentless terrorists, life is not in any way precious to them. >> americans and other western workers were on as about when multiple militants attacked. the militants took hostage at this gas plant heavily armed with rocket grenades and forced some hostages to wear explosive vests. the militants may have t
government. initially he said he had equal governments, he wanted the united states government to do more to help him, and mexican government to do more to help him. the good news he is home this marine. bill: listen to him talk. he is measured, mature man. that is what got him out of there. back home now. well-done. martha: so back in washington, house republicans are now reacting to some tough words from president obama at his last news conference of the first term which took place yesterday morning. it was long one. republicans have only two options in the battle over raising the nation's borrowing limit. here is what he said. >> they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. martha: hmmm. there you go. iowa republican congressman steve king joins me now. so those are your two options. you can either crash the american economy or you can raise th
on the part of gun owners that somehow the federal government's about to take all your guns away. and you know, that there's probably an economic element to that. it obviously is good for business. >> megyn: chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor and host of power play live. and since he's made those remarks, there's been considerable pushback from gun rights supporters, saying he just doesn't get it. it's not that anybody has scared them into otherwise, that believing that something is going to happen that's not going to happen. they're listening to the debate right now on capitol hill and they're concerned about their second amendment rights based on what they're hearing directly from the president and his surrogates. the president made it clear he'd like to see an assault weapons ban put back in place. >> it goes beyond that, he's actually impugning the motive of the other side of this debate. and if we thought a month ago in the immediate wake of the shootings in connecticut that we-- the window was open for some sort of bipartisan or this isn't really a partisan issue, but this is
they do that? are there checks and balances? >> the government and the private companies are blaming each other. venezuela is pointing fingers everywhere. we have the government that is blaming the private companies of hoarding the products to destabilize the country and possibly provoke a coup because of what is happening. >> a coup? >> yes. but then we have the private companies in the position that are blaming the government for not providing a stable capital control and limiting the dollars to venezuelans and other companies so they could purchase out of venezuela. >> is this nationwide? is this just caracas? >> it is mostly happening in caracas, but it is also throughout the whole country. it has a lot to do with inflation. but also there is something we have to talk about which is the price regulation that the government created last year. let me show you an example. talk about milk production. milk producers, they can only receive 3.6, equal to 84 cents, where leader once selling their milk. however, the cost of production, it is 4.13. which is 96 cents. so on average milk producer
? what are you hearing? what is the u.s. government trying to do, the military and civilian sector? >> well, right now we understand that on the diplomatic front the u.s. is letting the algerian take the leads. the algerians have voubded the compound. they are trying to negotiate with the kidnappers. we are told that in addition to this retribution that they are talking about, they are also asking for some of their prisoners who were being held by algeria and other countries to be released and sent to northern mali. they are handling that. obviously the u.s. has assets in the region and can be contemplating some type of rescue. >> elise, thank you very much. we're learning that africa is taking the lead on the military side of the crisis. let's go to our pentagon correspondent, chris lawrence. chris, if needed, where could the military help come from? >> it could come from europe and even closer. a senior defense official tells me now that defense secretary leon panetta has assured americans that the u.s. military will take all necessary and proper steps to deal with this attack. w
in the history of this country that limited government, fiscal responsibility, individual sovereignty, a strong national defense, are best for america and ensures our future generations have the opportunities of previous generations. >> greta: let me switch to fitch warning it may downgrade credit, the american credit if we -- if the debt ceiling isn't raised. your thought on that? >> well, it's so important that we get this debt situation under control, and i think that once again, when you consider what we're doing to our future generations, you know, our children and our grandchildren, currently who have $53,000 debt upon them. we're eroding their possibilities and their opportunities in this great society. so i think we have to have up in washington d.c., the seriousness, to look at the true problem, which is a spending problem. look at mandatory spending programs and we have to stop the exorbitant amount of spending and we have to say, finally, we're going to stop this debt and we're going to get serious, and i think that fitch is very appropriate in saying that if they don't see a curtail
have the nra arguing for larger federal government putting armed people like government troops into schools as opposed to leaving did up -- it up to -- >> the nra came out with that proposal to put guards in school, everybody from the president's party went after them. durchled on them. -- dumped on them. >> that was specifically about the president, not aut democrats. the president said it. he president did not say it. it is just a lie. >> let me push back on that to play devil's advocate. if at elite schools, they have private security and armed guards, what is wrong with at public schools having armed guards? >> and why not pay for it? >> right. so if you're arguing for that massive expansion of government, what that would require, and we're going to budget -- >> it's not massive. >> it is massive. >> we're hypothetically arguing. if they wouldn't pay for the couple million dollars that was in the safe school program, they cut that down to zero, now, they are saying, we want to put armed guards in every school to override the local government and say, your local district and
of my party who think that this is not a proper function of the government. i happen to disagree. i've lived through hurricanes and floods myself, i think this is a proper and appropriate function of the government. my difficulty with it, it is simply not paid for, we're borrowing this additional money to do this and i just think that's wrong. >> what his amendment would do would cut $17 billion in spending across the board in every sector of the government including defense, including vets. i was talking to somebody on capitol hill who said that amount of money is the entire operating budget, akin to the entire operating budget of the agriculture department. we do not think it will pass but it really gives a sense of why the speaker got himself in so much trouble by pulling this before the night of new year's day, because of this very reason, he knew there were a number of republicans who were very upset about passing any new government spending without cutting it elsewhere and it's going to play out on the house floor today. >> we're going to talk more about this later. dana bash
. some for congress. some measures the government can take on its own. the president will announce a crackdown on people that lie on background checks. tougher penalties for gun traffickers. better distribution of mental health records. he will ask lawmakers to pass legislation requiring universal background checks and banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines where republican congressman bob goodlatte of west virgina suggests he will run into opposition. >> this is a very important constitutional right. we're dedicated to protecting the second amendment from that standpoint. what we want to focus on are ways to make sure that people with serious mental difficulties are kept away from firearms. >> reporter: even democrats saying the assault weapons ban in particular is a longshot. bill? bill: wendell. thank you. some morning rain there at the white house for you. wendell goler staying dry. martha? martha: some folks in law enforcement are seething over this proposed gun control law changes. they say they will not enforce those laws. in a letter that he wrote tot vice pres
they -- philanthropic side and look like they care and put out the ads. are they just scared of the government coming after them? or trying to do the right thing? >> i guess if you line up lawyers with legislators on the same page, they smell blood. this is a big pool of money they want to go after. bob, you mentioned maybe there is a lawsuit coming along the line of what is the tobacco industry was. >> bob: coca-cola didn't do that when they were getting me fat. this is a cover me moment. >> kimberly: no, they didn't. what about the coca-colabe in green room? >> bob:be they should be sued, too. they're all scared about the obesity. a big deal. they are worried about getting sued. they will, a lot of them. this is nothing more, this is not coca-cola feels bad about the obese people. this is covering their butt. >> dana: there are not obese people in the ad. >> eric: they have to worry about -- >> bob: every ethnic group in america. >> dana: no fat people. >> eric: why worry about covering their butt? take personal responsibility to not drink coat when you are fat why is it their problem? >> that is t
if the scandal implicating top cycling officials inside the international cycling union, the sports' governing body. more on armstrong's latest trouble in a live report from austin, texas. >>> to another developing story this morning in north africa, in algeria, where the fate of several americans remains unknown. they were taken hostage yesterday during an attack by islamic militants. happened at a gas field owned partly by bp. two people have been killed, and there are reports this morning that some of those hostages have escaped. defense secretary leanne pa net leon panetta not mincing words. >> by all indication this is is a terrorist act and the united states strongly condemns these kinds of terrorist acts. it is a very serious matter when americans are taken hostage along with others. >> cnn's dan rivers is in london. dan, there are so many different stories going around that the compound was attacked by the algerian military, that some of the hostages escaped, including one american. what are you hearing? >> well, i'm afraid it is a very confusing picture. the latest line we have from t
about social security and government support for the elderly and spending money on medical research, then, about programs aimed at making sure kids in poverty are getting enough to eat. now this, snot only deeply dishonest it's a gross distorgs. a lecture coming from a man responsible for a massive increase in poverty during his presidency. a third thing we saw is how deeply misunderstood his facts are. saying his plan would claim $4 trillion next decade but that claim is untrue. the figure comes from one, one trillion in cuts reach aid year ago in budget negotiations, meaning no savings they're in the bank. two, it counts $800 billion in savings and debt payments from spending cuts. that is a dubis claim, three, obama counting a nearly $1 rilin savings from more money nobody expected to be spent anyway. now that the war with iraq is over and afghanistan war is winding down. so obama's premise that we need to balanced approach to cutting the deficit and huge fiction which in a plan will cut $4 trilin in the next decade, it will do no such thing. he is basing his argument on a falseh
